But these blankets/ throws are much harder to find and more sought after due to their fineness. The sure-footed Alpaca originated in the Andes, where it grazes gently, without damaging root systems. Its fine, lustrous fleece evolved to meet the challenge of high mountains and cold temperatures. The result is a soft, sustainable luxury fiber that's warmer than lambswool.
Durable, lightweight and hypoallergenic alpaca fiber will keep its strength and luster for generations. These were made in conjunction with the Alpaca Blanket project.
